Saint Seiya Myth Cloth review #35: The Lady Pandora

Time for another review between all that miniature violence (okay, granted, core business here) of the past weeks, and I admit, this one is a Barbie doll for teenage boys... as she is one of the `supporting` models for the Myth cloth line.

Pandora is Hades' sister in this life time, at a young age, she opened the box that was sealed by Athena and released Hypnos and Thanatos. She was told that Hades will become her brother and she must protect him until the final battle begins, if she would, they would grant her eternal life.
She commands the first wave of Spectres to attack the Sanctuary in the name of Hades in the final chapter. She was given a necklace that allows her to travel through different realms and has a complex relationship with Ikki due to their past regarding Shun.

Being Hades' Sister she was his slave and was unable to see fully in color but, after seeing Ikki's iron will, she regained color. Because she gave Ikki the Necklace, she was killed by Thanatos.

Okay, special case we have on our hands here, as you have a female model, some accesories and some clothes, but not armour at all.

The set allows you to create two variants, namely as she is first seen with a wide, loose robe, a torc and playing the harp while seated on a stool, mostly with ehr eyes closed. The face for this is included in the box as well.

The second posibility is to make her in the more tightfitting robe, the necklace, and carrying Hades`s lance.

And that is about it that there is to say for this boxed set actually.

As you can see on the picture, I went for the second option, but with the Harp being so nicely done, I opted to display it with her and seated her in her `later` dress on the stool. She is however, though nothing spectacular about the model itself, very well done and her face nicely captures the anime depiction.

I would rate her a 4.5 out of 5 stars, even though this is more a statuette then a myth cloth (even though she has full articulation like the normal models), but a really good one and makes a nice display piece amongst your other models.
